Steak was very solid but not anywhere near spectacular i.e. worth the heavy price we paid for it. 2 people (entree, drinks) cost 185. Ridiculous.

Great steak. Really liked it a lot. Appetizers kind of stunk and the staff was not very prompt, but steak makes a lot of things fall by the way side haha.

Haha. Forget this place. Best thing about it was the waiting staff. Crab appetizer was so bland with little taste. Lamb entree was chewy and covered in fat with little real meat. Prices were more expensive than Charlie Sheen's drug habits.

I think I'll pass next time. Food was really unspectacular. I might have been able to cook something more flavorful myself. Prices are too expensive for merely mediocre food. I was disappointed, ovverall.

Ehh, not bad. Not very good either. Appetizers were dreadful but the main course (I got fish) was pretty decent. Waiting staff was kind of rude when I asked them to hold something on the fish dish.

3 stars is the perfect grade for this restaurant. Everything was very solid. Nothing blew me away. The waiting staff was very prompt and attentive and I enjoyed my meal. Prices could be a bit more lower, however.

Wow. This place didn't do it for me at all. The appetizers were bland and boring. The entrees were awful and they were unwilling to prepare it in a slightly different way after I asked. The meals were severely expensive as well.

This place certainly didn't blow my mind. While the waiting staff was very friendly, the food took forever to come out and each person got their dish at separate times. The prices were outrageous. Not great value here.

Let me start by saying that this is the first negative review I've ever written about a restaurant, and we eat out a few times a week.

To start, while our waiter was very nice and accommodating (the one positive of the evening), there was a huge language barrier and he was unable to understand/answer some of our questions about the menu.

My crab cake appetizer was just OK, while the crab cocktail appetizer my boyfriend ordered was much better.

For our side (a la carte), I asked if the chef could prepare sauteed spinach, as opposed to the creamed spinach on the menu. I was told he could not, as it was prepared ahead of time. This seemed odd until I tasted it - the mushy texture made it clear it had been sitting around for a while. We left this uneaten.

I ordered the lamb chop for my entree. Let me just say that I eat a lot of lamb, and this was -- hands down -- the absolute worst lamb I have ever had both in quality of cut and flavor. It came in three mangled pieces, each so tough and loaded with both fat and bone, I literally could not find more than one bite of meat to eat. The one piece I did taste was completely bland in flavor. I promptly sent it back and our waiter suggested I order the fillet instead.

The medium rare fillet took so long to arrive, that my boyfriend was done with his meal by the time it arrived (I told him to go ahead and eat so his meal didn't get cold). This kind of defeats the purpose of dining together. Side note: he qualified his sirloin as "mediocre at best."

Not wanting to eat solo, I had my fillet wrapped to go. The manager made no apologies and we were given our bill in full, which totaled an astonishing $245 pre-tip for two people (including drinks)

Obviously, I would never return to this establishment. There are far too many other high quality Westchester restaurants that sweep the floor with this in both price and food quality. Save your money.

Sadly disappointed. The waiters hovered and kept rushing us, steaks were way too rare (not what we asked for) and food was way overpriced...

Last night was the first night I have been there since the new management has taken over and I must say that the reputation of a Peter Lugers with out the 2 hour drive is well deserved. The presentation of steak as well as the quality ( which is now understood, after speaking to the manager, both Peter Lugers and Tollgate purchase from the same purveyor) The ambiance aspect that has been reviewed in the past as turn of the century has been over come by a new entrance as well as a fantastic new bar area. We enjoyed being able to sit and have a drink before and after our meal. Highly recommended was the new dessert menu, and lived up to the hype. Great steak, new atmosphere and location make this place well worth a visit.

I took my family to Tollgate Steakhouse last night after reading the reviews on Citysearch. I have to say that I was very disappointed. I am generally an optimist and always find the best in any bad situation, but in the case of Tollgate Steakhouse, there is none. I heard as we were leaving from the hostess that the place is under new management, so that can explain my obviously different review than what's been posted here previously.

The room is too bright and noisy to start. We had a toddler sitting behind us playing with a firetruck that was not appropriate to begin with. They had a decent wine list and we chose a nice Barolo since we would be eating what we hoped would be a great piece of beef. Our Appetizers came and they were clearly previously frozen - since the calamari was beyond rubber and as you tried to bite it off, it was impossible to seperate from the rest of the ring. The baked clams were just as rubbery, while also loaded with a great deal of grit.

For our entree,we ordered a "Porterhouse for Three", which cost approximately the same as a night in a hotel in a well sized metropolitan city. What came was essentially two porterhouse steaks sitting opposed to one another on a very hot plate. OK, decent presentation, but why call it porterhouse for 3 and charge outrageous prices if your are just basically serving 2 steaks. I expected at least a double cut.

Now, the biggest disappointment came when we tastes this steak. There was absolutely no flavor in this steak at all! No pepper or salt, nothing! The beef flavor was muted with no real texture or any quality charachteristics. Both my kids said they would have preferred to have me cook a steak for them at home. All the while, a very tall man was walking around table to table asking how things were - obviously the manager. I think he saw the disapointment in our faces and chose to walk by us several times! Don't go!

It's not to often that you can come across a great piece of "prime" beef...The quality at the Tollgate is incredible...It's amazing how consistent this steakhouse is...The filet mignon is always so tender, the porterhouse steak is always like butter, the spinach, the potatoes, service, EVERYTHING is just fantastic.. I always feel very comfortable, always enjoy my meal, and always enjoy the service.. This is great place for a Guy's night out , a long lunch, or after a long 18 holes of golf...Again, the quality doesn't get any better, definitely NYC quality in the "burbs"....

Perfect atmosphere for a group dinner. From the hearty appetizers, to the delicious poterhouse for 6, cooked to perfection, and accompanied by the traditional steakhouse sides(which I took an extra hasbrown home they were so good). A broad selection of wine, and impeccable service from our waiter Dominick, makes this a place I will frequent often.

When a friend told me The Tollgate was " Peter Luger's without the attitude" i couldn't believe it, I had to see for myself.....WOW, I'm happy I did!! From the moment I walked in to the moment I walked out everything was perfect..But let's talk about the main importance, THE BEEF....My wife and I shared the porterhouse for two which was PHENOMENIAL, the cream spinach and homefries were EXCELLENT and then were the desserts....However it was crowded but from soup to nuts it doesn't get much better.....

I guess the options are small in the steakhouse realm in Westchester, but this wasn't great. Granted it was a couple years ago, but from the other review it sounds like it is the same. We had an o.k. dinner, but to charge those prices it needs to be great. The portions on the side dishes were good. The acoustics in the restaurant weren't great either. There was a loud party in the same room and it was deafening. I would save your money and go into NYC for a good steak dinner! Service was o.k.

This restaurant is a great place for your steak. We had a private room upstairs for 16 people ad it was great. Succulent shrimp for appetizers, a huge 4 person porterhouse, creamed spinach, sauteed mushrooms and hash browns. It all hit the spot and at a decent price too. Parking can be a pain but it well worth it.

A Peter Luger imitation, which slightly lacks Luger's quality. I'd rather go to Flames when I'm in Westchester: the steak, apps and décor are much better (Flames is even better than Luger's).
